Club Scrap Monthly Digital Page Swap

For years now I have been participating in the monthly digital page swap and as a result have built up a wonderful library of ready made digital swap pages.

This month I thought that I would write a blog about how to make a digital swap page or plopper.

What you do is start with a blank layer (transparent).  I make mine 12" x 12" at 300ppi.  Then drag a background paper onto this layer.  At this point I usually create the "hole" for a photo.  In this case a rectangle.  To do this use the rectangle selection tool and make the rectangle which shows up as a shape outlined by marching ants.  Then go to edit>cut and enter and voila - you have your place for your photo.

Then you can add to your hearts content.  My layout with Club Scrap's beautiful Take Wing Collection has a horizontal gradient tint layer added and a couple of embellishments and a word stamp.




Enjoy.
